Fish collagen contains type I collagen and is made from fish skin and scales. Although bovine and fish collagen have similar effects, type I fish collagen is made up of smaller peptide molecules, making them easier to digest and absorb. This collagen is enriched with an amino acid called hydroxyproline, an essential component of the skin, blood vessel walls and connective tissues.
Other benefits of fish collagen:
- reduces signs of ageing
- helps healthy skin and its elasticity
- helps regenerate joints, tendons and bones
